Honest review
By OmidHound, 31-10-2020

I Can't be the only one who thought of using him as a CB right!

So for me it was between him and baby Petit. I tried Petitt first and wanted to give Puyol a go too!

The following review is based on 20+ games played in div 2 and 1

he starts as a RB with a shadow with 10 chem , but in game i switch him with Ferland Mendy who i play with 7 chem as a cb.

Pace 8/10 : He just doesn't feel 86 pace with shadow to me! still pretty quick tho! he definitely feels like 80 pace

passing 5/10 : he misplaced a few , nothing too bad tho, hes just not a great passer, keep it simple with him

Dribbling N/A : agility and balance in no was had a bad effect on him, jockey speed and direction change was on pint with him! Reactions tho was a huge Pro! i didn't get that with Petit! those crazy AI blocks and reaction interceptions! Crazy good!

Defending 9/10 : With shadow its pretty much maxed out. everything in this department felt Elite with him! Amazing tackling animations and lovely positioning and awareness.

Physical 10/10 : he just has a invisible bubble around him , like Van Dijk , opponent walks anywhere near hem he just paralyses them you know. no one is winning a shoulder to shoulder battle with him.


Overall, Is he worth it? Yes he is

Is he Better that Petit as a CB? YES, so much better

Is he Going to Stop R9 and Eusebio? No , you gotta realize you get what you pay for! at this stage i had no problems to stop Cr7 , Neymar , Mane , Rashford type of players and that for me is HUGE! But you need to understand hes not a Elite META player. If Diego Carlos got like 3-4 informs , this is how he is gonna feel like! still No Maldini!

Pace i guess

Puyolcito Papaaa
By Mimzinho, 21-12-2020

This man is one of the best CBs I have used this year. He may not be as fast as TOTW Walker, or Joe Gomez, but his extraordinary defensive positioning and crunching tackles make up for it. When I first pulled this beast of a man, I thought it was terrible, till I actually looked a little harder at the stats. One specific icon I noticed he was very similar to was baby Vidic. I would say most of the community would have considered Vidic a W, especially since it was the first icon SBC released, and most people would also consider Puyol a massive L. However, the stats of these cards are extremely similar, and I would argue Puyol might have a slight edge over him. I would recommend playing him alongside a pacey cb with maybe less defending like the new Adama card or Walker

  • -Standing/Slide Tackle
  • -Interceptions
  • -COMPOSURE
  • -Strength in 50/50s
  • -Stamina
  • -Positioning
  • -Passing (not amazing, but not terrible)

-Pace (with Shadow is good, but not enough to catch the likes of Neymar, Mbappe, etc.)

- Affordability



  • -Dribbling (he's not going to skill anyone anytime soon)
  • -Height (sometimes he losses headers)
  • -Normally he will be played on 6 chem if you start him at CB

An AMAZING CB
By Timed, 13-11-2020

I have played about 10 games with him in high Div 3 and Low Div 2. I was looking for a CB that could hold it down in the back, but I also wanted someone different to play with. I saw this card for only 300k, and thought it would make a decent CB (especially since his other two cards are CBs). I play him off chem on 7 with a shadow, and he is SOLID. His step ins are amazing and he can bully people off the ball. His long passing is not the best. Keep it simple with Puyol. His jumping and heading accuracy balance out his height of 5'10". His M/H workrates are ideal for his position. If you are looking for a different CB that is fun tomplay with, but can still perform then use Puyol!
